All-Purpose Houseplant Potting Mix - 5 Litre Bag

$9.99

The perfect indoor plant potting soil has the ideal balance of airflow, drainage and moisture retention that simulates your plant's natural habitat while factoring in the conditions in the home environment. 

Please note, all potting mixes are bagged in biodegradable paper bags which won't last forever like plastic bags do but... also won't store your soil forever either so use it before you lose it or immediately store your soil into a reusable plastic pot/container before the bag starts to disintegrate.

All-Purpose Houseplant Potting Mix:

This all-purpose pH neutral mix is sustainably peat-free and has the ideal balance of the perfect sized components to provide enough 'Macro' gaps for airflow and drainage as well as 'Micro' gaps for light water retention. We have used this mix in our plants for over 10 years because it was designed for plants to thrive in the home environment rather than for use in a commercial greenhouse. 

Main Ingredients:

Bark Pieces, Coconut Husk Fibre, Pumice Pieces, Sand, Organic Compost & a little balanced NPK slow-release fertiliser.

Suitable Plants:

Most types of indoor plants such as aroids, palms, peperomia, ferns, ficus, strelitzia, marantaceae and many more. Not for Orchids & Carnivorous Plants.

Watering:

Standard practices - adjust for the season, weather and placement. 

Plant Size Guide

The plant in the photos is an example and an approximate guide only however we try to show an average sized example. Sizes, flowering state and colours change throughout the seasons and variation will occur. In summer & autumn, plants are often larger or the same size as than the example picture but around winter and spring, they can be a little smaller but still at a size similar to the example. We aim to update the pictures to reflect significant differences.

Plant Heights - because the plant's foliage must fit inside our Plant Cartons, the actual height of a plant's central trunk (meristem) will be shorter than the box it fits in.

Small Plants - 14cm wide nursery pot - 1 Litre volume - Plants fit in a 50cm tall box.

Medium Plants -  17cm wide pots either 2L hanging pot or 2.5L nursery pot - Plants fit in a 75cm tall box.

Large Plants - 25cm wide pot, 10L volume. Plants fit in a 100cm tall box.

XL Plants - Plants over 100cm tall in pot sizes specified, 25cm/10L or greater and are hand delivered within Auckland/Northland only.

Plants in Transit

Each Small, Medium & Large plant is individually contained within its own protective cardboard Plant Carton which may be joined to other cartons in your order.

Plants typically take just a day or two to arrive, however they are usually fine in their cartons for 1-2 weeks, and many can go longer, so a few extra days are not usually cause for concern.

Whether it takes 1 or 7 days, let your plant recover from its journey by placing in gentle light and adding a little water and it will be back to its best within a couple of days. Let us know if there are any major issues via the contact page.
